Comments:

In bacteria four proteins: TsaC, TsaB, TsaD and TsaE (YrdC, YeaZ, YgjD and YjeE, respectively) are both necessary and sufficient for t6A biosynthesis in vitro. YrdC and YgjD are members of universally conserved families while YeaZ and YjeE are specific to bacteria. TsaB shows homology with YgjD (TsaD) and interacts physically with YjeE (TsaE) and YgjD (TsaD). Together with YjeE, TsaB may also regulate the activity of YgjD.
